Description:   span class="x_x_x_x_x_Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 15px;">DBA will aim to construct a network between students and businesses in Brazil in order to facilitate and expand opportunities for its members. Part of this bond will be with Duke alumni. span class="x_x_x_x_x_Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 15px;">In addition, we will organize various fundraising opportunities with organizations in Brazil that are in need of help. span class="x_x_x_x_x_Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 15px;">Furthermore, while recognizing that an academic knowledge of the language is provided through the department of Romance studies is essential, we seek to complement the former by exposing students to the Portuguese language and culture in a more informal setting. p class="x_x_x_x_x_MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;">span style="font-size: 11.0pt; font-family: Arial; color: black;">So as to make this community a reality, we will work closely with the Portuguese Department and administration as a whole.
